A Milestone

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Monday, May 28, 2012,
This past Wednesday I finally took a deep breath and rode the Yamaha to work. While the trip is only a few miles further than the run I made to get it inspected the mileage wasn't significant, it was where I traveled that was. Up here in the boonies we have large gaps in cell phone coverage. You go for miles without a cell tower in sight. My trip to work is mostly in a NO SERVICE zone so if the bike quit on me I'd be up a creek. Fortunately it behaved for the most part and got me to work quic...

So far I'm stuck at unlucky 13 for the number of trips to work but the report for tomorrow is looking go...

Finally

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Saturday, May 5, 2012,
As you know I've been chasing the stalling problem of the little Yamaha ever since I got it running. Today I think I've finally narrowed it down, maybe even solved it. The ignition switch has always been, as my Dad would say, "a little fluky". Unlike every other bike in the garage it doesn't snap into the start position but rather slides over and never has felt completely right. 
One day in the midst of trying to restart it after it stalled on me I twisted the key over and slapped the key down...
